    Question I.D. Spider ?

    Can anyone tell me what kind of spider this is? They come in my cricket boxes and I got bit by one a couple months back and had a bad reaction. First time I decided to try and get a photo. My eyes are so bad, I could not have made out any of the details on this.
    Have an issue with spiders,roaches,just about anything of this nature and would really like to know what this is....
    no idea what all the little speckles are...cricket poop???

    Looks like a wolf spider... they can be aggressive and have a bite that can cause pain, swelling, and itching.

    Could it be a Brown Recluse? Picture looks like it could be.

    Looks like it is a type of running crab spider.

    I think Gecko Haven is right! Apparently Thanatus vulgaris are very common in crickets from pet stores and deliveries!

    That's the one that looks the most like you've got, but throw "thanatus" and "cricket" into Google and you should get tons of posts about them being common hitchhikers at cricket farms.

    I get these all the time! But I've always knew what they are so I just capture them and set-up a mini terrarium for them but they only last about a month. They are running crab spiders.
